Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a new tirade against Israel, calling Zionists a "people without any religion" and accusing them of "lying about being Jewish." Speaking at a news conference in Tehran, he said Zionists lie about their religion because "religion means brotherhood, friendship and respecting other divine religions."
Ahmadinejad also accused Zionists of being behind a recent cartoon in a Swedish newspaper that shows the head of the Muslim prophet Mohammed on the body of a dog. "I strongly believe they are behind it," he said. "They thrive on conflict and war. They are an organized minority who have infiltrated the world. They are not even a 10,000-strong organization."
